Our Reviews About This Tour

Perfect !

we went with Pedro, and first, we stopped and he bought us water and snacks. Then we went for a tiny walk in the Cotopaxi national park and finally did the 3 hours horse tour. Then we went to eat and it was all included. Then we were brought back to our hotel. Absolutely worth it, 10/10, Pedro was amazing and the view was spectacular. Horses were super well behavied. The whole experience was amazing

A great way to experience Cotopaxi

I would 100% recommend this trip – it was one of the best tours that I have taken. The landscape was phenomenal but it was really Pedro that made the tour. He was pleasant to be around, knowledgeable, and made sure that I was comfortable throughout the ride. A couple of suggestions: bring warm clothes. It can be chilly, windy and rainy. Also make sure to use plenty of sunscreen. Lastly, eat a big breakfast or bring some snacks. We didn’t make it to lunch until nearly 3:30pm. All in all – I highly recommend!

Great day with the horses!

We had a great day at Cotopaxi with Pedro as our guide. He rode along with us as well as the local horse guide. He was kind enough to translate for us and take photos. It was cloudy so we did not do the base camp ascent but walked around the lake and had a lovely lunch. 100% recommend!

The Best!!

This was the best experience ever!! Pedro is amazing and made everything go seemless. From pick up to drop off he over accommodated. The horses were exceptional. The ride was so enjoyable and the views are out of this world. 10/10 would do this over and over again.

Cotopaxi horse riding tour

Pedro was an amazing guide!
My partner and I did the Cotopaxi horse riding tour, and had a great time.
Pedro was very easy to talk with and provided lots of information on Ecuador and the surrounding volcanoes. Pick up was prompt, and the horse riding itself was fun, with very gentle and calm horses.
Also got to see some activity from Cotopaxi volcano – it was spouting out ash and steam.
Would recommend this tour to anyone :)
